Living in a climate that goes through every imaginable extreme of temperature and humidity does a number on the skin. And if you’re a man who regularly shaves, it’s common for the combination of changing weather and harsh razors to leave your skin rough and irritated. Sometimes a switched-up routine or diet alteration can alleviate these symptoms, but for some, an alternative to razor shaving altogether is the more comfortable solution. MenSalon offers traditional shaving and waxing options for Rochester, MN men of all skin types. If you’re struggling to find the best routine for your hair, our team is here to lend a hand.

Shaving vs Waxing

 When it comes to shaving or waxing, there are pros and cons to both. Waxing has a reputation for being harsh or painful, but for some skin types, it can be more precise and less irritating than traditional shaving. This might be partly tied to the shaving technique in question, but once you’re used to the waxing process, it might even feel simpler than fiddling with a razor every day.

Of course, waxing has limitations. For thick beards, a combination of trimming with clippers and traditional shaving is generally easier on the delicate areas of skin around your mouth and cheeks. But for large swathes of skin, such as the back and shoulders, or small, finicky areas, such as the brow, waxing offers many benefits.

Benefits of Waxing for Major Hair Removal

 Even the best razors and shaving products can still result in irritation. Waxing, on the other hand, pulls hair out from the root and doesn’t leave short, itchy hairs behind. When removing hair from large surface areas, those short hair follicles can leave you uncomfortable for days on end. Waxing removes that from the equation entirely.

Waxing and razor shaving are situational, but for men with sensitive skin, utilizing a mix of both, depending upon your hair removal goals, is the best way to keep your skin comfortable, no matter the season.
